La Domaine de Marie Antoinette

Versailles, France
By Haleigh In Non classé

The other visitors went with the horizon, lost to the grandeur of a once great chateau. The hours must have passed while we ignored our watch and where doors open we followed. When we came to bridges, we crossed them. On a quiet path we sipped champagne, delicately chilled in autumn air along its pilgrimage from Paris. We swung in the trees and played in the leaves, tipsy off the bubbles or perhaps just the joy of the day. The whistle blew but we paid no mind, making ourselves at home in this place built by kings for queens. I’m no daughter of royalty, just a common girl, but that day it was ours. On our way out only the birds were left to greet goodnight to as the gate locked behind us. Queen for a day…

      Hi Sunny, thank you! The sweater is by Le Mont Saint Michel, a great knitwear brand. I got it a year ago so not sure if they have the same one but I think they would have a similar style. If not I one by Maje that is almost exactly like it in color and knit and shape. Hope that is helpful!

    Oh my, this might just be the Perfect Post. The history and the decadence of that place matched with your playfulness and your dreamy photos – love it! I visited once, but it has been ten years, so I’ve got to go back soon!
